1898 Morgan reverse die crack? Grade?

PppPpp Posts: 466 ✭✭✭✭

I was bored again today so I pulled out a bunch of uncirculated Morgan’s looking for proof likes (I think I found some) to send in and came across this 1898 with what I think is a die crack on the reverse across the top portion of the word “STATES”. I checked vam world and didn’t find a listing.

Is it a die crack?
If no, then what is it?
Also, what grade would you give this coin?

Thank you in advance for your comments.

    It does look like a pretty cool die crack. Plenty of them so not much value, just cool factor. Doesn't look proof like to me either.

    Thank you. No, this was not one of the coins that i think is proof like.

    You are correct, it is a die crack. The images are tough to grade by, but the coin appears to have decent enough luster to indicate MS, but I would think nothing below AU58 from what you have provided.

    Not much extra value, but if you have any 21 D’s check those because they commonly have cracks like that one around the whole edge. If I have a photo I’ll post it.

    @Ppp You're welcome. Probably grade 63. doubt theres any premium for the VAM.

    @Ppp... Yep, minor die crack there... Interesting, but will not pull a real premium. Cheers, RickO
